Welcome to Secrets of Organ Playing Podcast #82!
Today's guest is Peter Holder who is Sub-Organist of St Paul’s Cathedral in London. He was appointed at the age of 23 following two years as Organ Scholar at Westminster Abbey. His responsibilities at both institutions have involved playing at numerous events of national importance, including the 60th Anniversary of the Coronation of HM Queen Elizabeth II, and accompanying the world famous choirs.
In this conversation Peter talks about what does it take to play such magnificent instruments at one of the most important cathedrals in the world and what is the musical life behind it.
